Wesley Pruden, editor emeritus of The Washington Times, on Obama’s “excellent adventure in Trinidad and Tobago”:
The president's critics ought to lighten up. We should give him credit for not knowing any better. (He was "finished" and "polished" at Harvard, after all.) Barack Obama is an accident of history, a street hustler from the South Side of Chicago with the gift of gab who landed on the world stage like a whale beached at the whim of a storm, the wrong man at the right time….
This one’s a keeper. Ralph Peters has similar thoughts at the New York Post.
